When you are in your teenage years you are consciously experiencing everything for the first time, so adolescent stories are all beginnings. There are never any endings.Aidan Chambers
Teenagers can be susceptible to the social influences around them, whether that would be beauty standards or family issues. In cases where obesity pervades in children’s homes, it can be drastically damaging for that teenager to be able to grow and develop as a person into adulthood. That’s why there’s Teenage Workout Day, a day all about giving teenagers an opportunity to start changing their exercise activity for their body and mind.
History of Teenage Workout Day
Teenage Workout Day aims to help teenagers find better ways to work out while also bring awareness to teenage obesity in the United States. While there are many organizations and school programs targeting childhood obesity, this holiday aims to improve those efforts by giving a day for teenagers to begin a workout program. Obesity overall affects over 12.7 million children and teenagers and can be caused by eating habits, a history of obesity in the family, low self-esteem, medications, and a stressful life event. It brings many health risks including heart disease, diabetes, breathing problems, joint pain, and hormonal changes.
While losing weight is generally the main focus of exercise, workout routines can improve mental help by relieving stress, sharpening memory, control unhealthy addictions, help alleviate anxiety and depression, and more health benefits that improve growth into adulthood. That’s why Teenage Workout Day is a day that encourages workout programs as a routine that teenagers should start because it can overall help that teenager grow into adulthood with a healthy body and a healthy mind. This day is all about decreasing the effects of obesity and changing the future of teenagers by helping them improve the way they view themselves.
